    Ingen annan frälsa kan?: - om kristna pluralisters lösningar kring människans frälsning2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats behandlar människans frälsning ur en kristet pluralistisk synpunkt med fokus på teologerna John Hick, Paul Knitter och Jacques Dupuis SJ och deras texter kring pluralism och människans frälsning. Frågorna som präglat uppsatsen är om man kan vara kristen och pluralist när det handlar om människans frälsning och om den kristna tro som man då beskriver är att räkna som autentiskt kristen. Analysverktyg har hämtats från teologerna Carl-Henric Grenholm, Mattias Martinsson, Thomas Ekstrand samt Mikael Stenmark. Uppsatsens resultatdel landar i att John Hick och Paul Knitters teologier inte är att beskriva som autentiskt kristna för att de konstruerar en ny kristen frälsningslära. Jacques Dupuis SJ upphör att vara av pluralistisk övertygelse för att behålla det som är att definiera som autentiskt kristet gällande människans frälsning, särskilt gällande Jesu Kristi korsdöd.

    Babylon Will Be Found No More: On Affinities Between Christianity and Anarcho-Primitivism2017In: Journal of Religion & Society, ISSN ISSN 1522-5668, Vol. 19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses affinities between Christian political theology and the Anarcho-primitivistcritique of civilization. It is argued that there is a significant constructive potential in such a critique, especially in relation to the current political and societal situation, and that the critique to a great extent is compatible with traditional Christianity. It is further argued that this constructive potential, while currently hampered, can be effectively unlocked in relation to a proper theological anchoring of Anarcho-primitivism. It is then maintained that such an anchoring could most plausiblybe provided by the Abrahamic traditions, and especially the Christian, due to the particular compatibility between Anarcho-primitivism and Christianity.

    Death and the Self: A Metaphysical Investigation of the Rationality of Afterlife Beliefs in the Contemporary Intellectual Climate2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation's purpose is to test the hypothesis that beliefs in the possibility of post-mortem survival can be rationally held within the context of the contemporary scientific and philosophical environment. In terms of criteria of rationality, a basic evidentialism is assumed, such that propositions which are sufficiently supported by the available evidence can be rationally held. With regard to the compatibility with contemporary science and philosophy, it follows as a further criterion that the relevant evidence must be satisfactorily anchored within the framework of these traditions.

    The relevant evidence concerns two levels. First, the basic level of the conceptual coherence of afterlife beliefs is addressed, so that the logical possibility of post-mortem survival can be established. Secondly, the viability of the metaphysics which are implied in the support of the logical possibility (i.e. the metaphysics needed to actualize post-mortem survival) is defended, establishing the metaphysical possibility of post-mortem survival. At this stage, reductive physicalism, which is the only position that effectively undermines post-mortem survival, is criticized, and the problem of interaction which burdens several of the survival-enabling ontologies is addressed.

    As for the criterion of scientific compatibility, it is further shown that contemporary physics are compatible with the survival-enabling metaphysics, and that contemporary physics can be argued to provide a moderate positive relevance with regard to these positions.

    The conclusion drawn is that belief in the possibility of post-mortem survival is not only rationally permissible within the framework of contemporary science and philosophy, but also rationally obligatory, i.e. that this possibility cannot rationally be denied with regard to the reviewed evidence.

    Tawḥīd al ’uluhiyya, Secularism, and Political Islam2014In: Journal of Religion and Society, ISSN 1522-5658, E-ISSN 1522-5658, Vol. 16, p. 1-7Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, a particular aspect of the Islamic notion of tawḥīd is described and explored with regard to its consequences for Islam’s relationship to secular society. It is argued that strains of Islam informed by the widespread, orthodox interpretation of this tawḥīd al ‘uluhiyya, or “the oneness of creation’s worship of God,” cannot be coherently harmonized with the notion of a secular, political order wherein religion and the public sphere are strictly separated. On this basis, it is then argued that inclusion of non-secular political Islam within the framework of liberal democracy is likely a preferable development in the interests of minimizing future international and domestic conflict, and supporting autonomous popular rule in Islamic states.

    Att fånga det flyktiga: Om existentiell mening och objektivitet2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This work attempts an answer to two questions. Firstly, is it possible to experience meaning when everything is transient? And secondly, in what way is objectivity possible when it comes to such phenomena as existential meaning? The questions originate from our insideperspective, and it is from what we have experienced ourselves that we try to make intelligible existential meaning. We are to a great extent part of the context in which we live. Our ability to contemplate our situation and our own contemplation is taking place in interplay with others. To make room for the small things meaningful in life, the expression existential meaning is used. In this expression both the meaningless and the meaningful are included, since both are needed for our understanding of meaning. Without the Other and that which is different, the individual person’s formation of existential meaning becomes just more of the same, it becomes an enclosure in the present. The encounter with the Other makes room for that which is different to break through.

    Objectivity is possible when it comes to existential meaning, if one views objectivity as a process between people. It is performed in conversation. Those who converse, refer to their bodily experiences of the Time that remains and help each other, using language as the tool, to formulate their experiences. They compare each others’ manifestations of existential meaning,

    and with the help of language they go further in the formation of what is meaningless and meaningful. Their conversations imply a normative presupposition that they can justify the claims that they make. Because it is actually not possible to make intelligible existential meaning in words other than by doing it as a mix of descriptions of that which is manifesting itself and linguistic rewritings in the form of stories. This expression of objectivity has a normative aspect, namely in relation to the possibility that we can be wrong. Therefore, we need each other in the act of judging, and together we are guided by the fact that it later on can emerge things that show that our judgment has not been fully correct.

    On the distinction between the concept of God and conceptions of God2008In: International journal for philosophy of religion, ISSN 0020-7047, E-ISSN 1572-8684, Vol. 64, p. 63-73Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The starting-point is the distinction between concept and conception. Our conceptions of gold, for instance, are the different understandings we get when we hear the word 'gold' whereas the concept of gold consists in the scientific determination of what gold is. It depends on the context whether it is more reasonable to claim a concept or to look for fitting conceptions. By arguing against metaphysical realism and for non-metaphysical realism, I will elaborate on some philosophical reasons for dealing with conceptions instead of concepts of God, and secondly, I will discuss how such conceptions should be critically assessed.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I will argue for a conception of religion that does not presuppose metaphysics in the traditional sense of the word. In a trivial sense we always have ideas of what is given and are all realists, living by our realist intuitions. But the philosophical crucial question is which conclusions can be reasonably drawn from this. In part I, I will argue against metaphysical realism in general. In part II, I will argue against its materialist challenge by showing in what sense it too can be conceived of as an example of metaphysical realism. In part III, I will show why there is no point in defending or in arguing against religion en bloc. Finally in part IV, I will argue for a conception of religion without metaphysics in the traditional sense by taking account of the existential function religion actually has in human life.

    The God who Seeks but Seems to Hide2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to reconstruct and evaluate two types of responses to an evidential argument from divine hiding, namely the ‘value agnostic’ response and the ‘theodicy’ response. In the study, the term ‘divine hiding’ refers to the experience of all those who find themselves having inconclusive evidence for the existence of God.

    According to the argument in focus, the fact that there is divine hiding that does not seem to be necessary for any particular greater good, or to avoid a worse evil, makes it improbable that God exists.

    In accordance with the value agnostic response, it is argued that it would not be surprising if divine hiding were necessary to realise greater goods or to avoid worse evils that are beyond our ken. In which case the goods or avoidance of evils in question could figure in a reason God might have for hiding. It is concluded that the value agnostic response is successful.

    The theodicy response states that divine hiding is probably necessary to realise greater goods or to avoid worse evils that are within our ken. It is argued that it would not be surprising if the realisation of the goods or avoidance of evils in question would in turn be sufficient for the realisation of worse evils that are beyond our ken. In which case the goods and avoidance of evils referred to in the theodicy response could not figure in a reason God might have for hiding. It is concluded that the theodicy response is a failure

    Finally, some further problems and prospects on which the study sheds light are discussed. In particular, it is argued that – although believers do not seem to have an evidential problem with believing in a God who seems to hide there might be an existential or practical problem, in particular for non-believers, when seeking a God who seems to hide.

    Dissolving Dualism: A Tripartite Model of Cognition for Religious Truth2011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This investigation can be described as a long journey to a final destination: a truth in religion. We start by considering dualism of the subjective and the objective, the classical model of cognition that underlies notions of truth. Dualistic notions of cognition lead to serious problems, especially for religious truth. Religions claim to state truths about the nature of the universe and human destiny, but these truths are incompatible. With a dualistic model this problem of diversity of religious truths leads to fundamentalism or relativism. Thus, this research aims to turn to the roots of the cognitive situation and investigate the way we cognize and relate to the world to provide a better model.

    As we consider the philosophical theories and empirical investigations of cognition, we come to the conclusion that dualism of the subjective and objective is not tenable. As the findings of contemporary mind sciences and phenomenologically oriented research indicate, human cognition is embodied, embedded, enacted, extended, and shaped by language.

    Thus, I propose to re-conceptualize the cognitive situation to provide a better philosophical account. I put forward a tripartite model of cognition, which unites language, action, and environment. The consequent application of this model to the issues of truth and religion shows that we can avoid the problem of diversity of truth claims. A tripartite model allows us to explain how we can maintain religion as true, despite the diversity of religious truth claims. Additionally, as this model is fundamental, its application leads to various new findings and inferences, which render anew the world and the way humans relate to it. Thus, our journey brings us to new frontiers of investigation.

    Barnets religionsfrihet – en villkorad rättighet?: En filosofisk undersökning utifrån FN:s barnkonvention2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation uses philosophical tools to examine the child’s right to freedom of religion within the context of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and other international human rights instruments.

    Article 14 of the CRC establishes the right of the child to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. It also establishes the right of the child's parents to guide and support the child in its exercise of the right to freedom of religion, while adjusting this support according to the child's evolving capacities. The emphasis of the study is on how to understand the child as, on the one hand, agent and subject in the exercise of this right and, on the other, dependent on parental support and guidance. For this purpose, the theoretical underpinnings of the child’s right to freedom of religion are examined with a particular focus on the conceptualization of this right in relation to children. With the text of the CRC as a starting point, different theories on rights, autonomy and religion are analyzed in order to find those compatible with both aspects of Article 14: the child as agent and the child as dependent. Theories that demand fully developed cognitive abilities in order to be a moral agent and a rights holder are rejected, as are theories in which the parents are the sole decision-makers on the basis of their own view of what is in the child's interests. In the same way, conceptions of religion in purely cognitive terms, or not taking into account dimensions of practice and observance accessible to children, are rejected.

    The conclusion drawn from the analysis is that relational conceptualizations of rights and autonomy and multi-dimensional conceptualizations of religion are best served to include both aspects of the child's right to freedom of religion. In viewing all humans, adults and children alike, as both active agents and vulnerably dependent on others, these conceptualizations challenge traditional views on rights and autonomy, and modern views of religion. In the final chapter, aspects of these relational conceptions are put together into a relational, mutuality-oriented model of the child's right to freedom of religion.
